Re: lessons learnt from games.

The rules have changed slightly but the last time I faced him with Khthones I destroyed his axe with one of their spells which massively cut down his damage output. It now doesn't totally remove his attacks but it reduces the attack dice to 1 and removes any bonuses from weapon abilities (+D10 etc)....

Re: This Swamp is just big enough for the two of us

It's gorgorar that are the ranged female snakes. Gorgonar are the male combat snakes (ehich I think you have). Krokodar are bloody fantastic too. Great tanks, but the extra cost per model really hurts when you're needing 3 in a unit. I think khthones are still struggling to find a balance under the ...

Re: This Swamp is just big enough for the two of us

It's the impact of 2 big monsters. You have max 8 activations and most of the army wants to be in combat. Gorgorix, gorgoragos and vasilisk are your only ranged threats so generally opponents will control the flow of the game. I've not tried the vasilisk tho, so maybe it's attack is good enough to h...
